Notes

I've tried half a dozen times to do up a high rising whole wheat bread/pizza but was ever successful. I broke down and did one with all white flour and it was delicious, more so than anything out of a delivery car and maybe as good as in a good Italian restaurant.

Yeah ! This is some great news . Congradulations , and welcome to the world of the pizzaiolo . Please , continue to perfect your recipes and start trying some new ingredient and cheese combos.
